I have a questions for you Tramado users. I tried Tramadol several years ago...only one dose...and it knocked me out in a matter of minutes. I never took anymore of them. Now, my rheumatologist has put me on Tramadol again. He did say I could cut it in half. The script was for 3 pills a day. When I picked them up this morning I asked the pharmacist that if I cut the pills in half, could I take a half six times a day. She said the pills were not scored so I needed to take them whole. I checked online and only one manufacturer scores Tramadol.
But, because these knocked me out last time I thought I'd just try to cut one in half...just for the heck of it. I didn't have a problem! So, I think I'll start out with 1/2 to see what happens.
Have any of you cut Tramadol in half like this? If so, how often did you take them? I cut pills fairly frequently because my body seems to have reactions to them...like they are too strong.
